It is very smooth till now and even faster after marshmallow update. Sony phones are well optimised. That's why Sony phones work better with 3GB ram than Samsung with 4GB ram. Specs, benchmark and real life experience are different things. Yes, Sony releases new phones later but quality is amazing. So, go for Sony.

It's really ALL Sony Mobile's fault for their idiotic marketing & sales depts, as well as their jacka$$ of a CEO. Their phones are works of art and to me other phones just don't hold up. The only reason Samsung and Apple sell more phones is b/c they do a much better job of holding the public's interest by advertising, establishing a NAME & REPUTATION that ppl care about, etc. I think the FACT that HTC, Apple, & Samsung all use Sony's camera sensors says a lot about who REALLY is the king of smartphones.
All I know is, no other line of phones amazes me like Sony's Xperia line does. It's like they built these phones after reading my mind. Just little features here & there (Smart Call Handling, Smart Connect, STEREO speakers on the FRONT where they f'ing belong), the style of the phone, the EASE of use (many have said Sony's phones are virtually STOCK or vanilla Android), the high class feel of it, etc. To me, they are the MASERATI of smartphones.
I can say their phones are not really good, they are EXCELLENT. But the ppl running the show......... don't have a f'ing CLUE what they are doing. If I were running things, Sony's Xperia phones would be WAY more sought after than Apple or Samsung's phones are. They both make really nice phones, but they're both also OVERRATED too. Sony needs to stop hiding in the shadows and step back out and retake their seat at the throne. But that will never happen as long as they cease to advertise in the US, make idiotic decisions like taking out the fingerprint software on their US Xperia phones, taking F'ING FOREVER to release their phones (announced in Feb, released in June/July for the XP?!! WTF??!!), having a really lousy customer support center, etc. Sony Mobile's CEO needs to grow some balls or go F himself already. I f'ing hate all of them and I wish they had the courage to read what ppl like me (and many many others) are saying about them. Maybe then they'd wise up and turn their company around instead of watching it diminish away while LESSER phone companies take their place at the top.

People and their phone are always moving. Like me I made my last comment in my home, now I am at coffee stall, not so far from my house. And my IP changes, only the last letter.

But ya it... moreIt doesn't suit me b/c the phone shouldn't skip while playing music every 3-5 min REGARDLESS of what setup I'm using (3.5mm port is ok though, just not via MicroUSB port), the sound quality of a phone this pricey should be stellar, but it's God awful. And even with VoLTE (which means HD Voice is included) it still sounds really bad during phone calls vs. my XP. TouchWiz lags like crazy............ so yeah, plenty of reasons to want power and not want the S7 over the XP. lol
I do use my phone for web browsing, but not as much as on PC b/c I find it easier to web browse on my PC. Umm, I guess on IP location. Does my IP location show on this site? How do you know that I'm on my PC?
Well yes and no. ONLY social media app I use is Snapchat. I only have ONE instant messenger app and that's Google Hangouts which of course comes with the phone. For texting I only use Textra as Google Messenger for some reason doesn't work well on the XP for MMS messages (where on my Z3 GM was the better of the two). I don't use any battery saving apps now, just Stamina Mode (now and then) since they appear to have FINALLY fixed it. But I WOULD use 360 Hibernation Master app again if it worked on the XP as AMAZINGLY as it did on ALL the Z series phones.

And it looks like you also never use your phone for web browsing. Since you owned S7 then got defective XP, and now get the replacement, your IP/location never change. You use PC. Right?
I guess you collect many messenger apps, social media apps and battery saver apps, you always talk about hibernation app.
Sony please dont disriminate other countries who desire to buy dual sim xperia. Youre just throwing mud at your own reputation.

It's more COLOR ACCURATE & BRIGHTER than the Z5. But hey, if you like your colors a bit off and a screen that can't get very bright, go for the Z5. With the NEW Stamina Mode, the battery life on my XP is just fine by me.
Yeah the 4K thing is really no big deal. On a TV, yes. On a smartphone, no. Sammy does have their "moments" I guess (VR, Samsung Pay), but I had the S7 and no way do I think it's better than the XP. The speaker sound quality including phone call quality on that phone was beyond pathetic. I don't even have VoLTE on my XP (not avail if using a US carrier I guess, but other countries offer it) and it STILL sounds better during phone calls! It lagged a lot despite having 1 more GB of RAM, it too was less color accurate than the XP's camera (and screen), etc. I'll prob NEVER buy another Samsung again. S5 was a letdown and although S7 was a huge upgrade it still wasn't good enough for me. Headphone listening via MicroUSB port on S7 resulted in music skipping like every 3-5 minutes. On XP I went 3-4 hours STRAIGHT one night a couple weeks ago, and it didn't even skip ONCE. NOT ONCE.

I agree 4K screen on Z5P is overrated, many say gimmick. It looks like Sony don't know its potential. LG outed 2K screen first, but its Sammy that know the potential, they worked with oculus, that resulted gear VR and gear VR apps. and now all vendor copy them, even Google copy them.

I guess Sony loves that band idea. So they copied it, but in cheap way and results this ugliness.
